Alaska Airlines Is Cutting Routes From These Major Hubs

#Alaska Airlines Is Cutting Routes From These Major Hubs

5 things Alaska Airlines flyers can expect in 2023 & beyond

The year 2022 hasn’t been great for air travel, what with numerous aircraft delays and cancellations, airport turmoil, and rising rates.

Even if the cost of airline tickets is finally starting to decline and there have been fewer flight delays recently compared to the first half of the year, travellers still face one recurring issue: finding aircraft routes that work for them as carriers continue to reduce service.

As airlines continue to struggle with pilot and labour shortages, United recently cut 12 domestic flight patterns, American withdrew from four cities, and Delta reduced 100 flights per day throughout the summer. Additionally, other U.S. airlines than the “big three” are also suffering the strain on their route networks. Alaska Airlines announced on Friday that it will discontinue four flights over the next months due to a drop in demand.

List of cutting Routes from these major Hubs:

  • Austin–Bergstrom International Airport to Palm Springs International Airport (effective November 30, 2022)
  • Los Angeles International Airport to Salt Lake City International Airport (effective November 30, 2022)
  • Los Angeles International Airport to Austin–Bergstrom International Airport (effective January 9, 2023)

For Alaska and its flyers, the cuts are not all terrible news. Alaska and American collaborate under a “West Coast international alliance,” which offers reciprocal elite perks, possibilities for earning and redeeming miles, free elite upgrades, and more. Alaska and American are both members of the Oneworld alliance.
